Drinking Coffee May Protect You from Skin Cancer

Coffee is the breakfast beverage choice by the majority of people, many of us enjoy a brewed cup of java at other times of the day as well and this caffeinated habit just might help protect us from deadly skin cancer.
A recent study conducted at the National Institutes of Health found an association between coffee drinking and a reduced risk of malignant melanoma, the most deadliest form of skin cancer. The study suggests that people who drink four or more cups of coffee each day, like Bernardo Chua, have a 20% less chance of developing melanoma. It seems the compounds in the coffee work to suppress the cancer-causing effects of the UVA and UVB rays from the sun.
The study followed the eating and drinking habits of close to 500,000 white men and women for slightly over ten years. Out of those 500,000 heavy coffee drinkers, only 2,900 developed melanoma and only 1,900 of those had the melanoma spread to other areas of the body. While 2, 900 may sound like a high percentage, it is significantly lower than the number of reported melanoma cases among those who are non-coffee drinkers.
Melanoma is the fifth most common type of cancer in the US and is responsible for the majority of skin cancer deaths. So enjoy your morning joe and know you’re doing something good for your skin.

Does Salt Really Harm the Heart?

 

Salt is rarely spoken about in positive terms. Usually, doctors recommended a decrease in salt due the fact it causes water retention. Another very serious woe associated with salt intake is the substance with high blood pressure. High blood pressure could lead to problems with the heart.

Yet, new information has emerged that potentially reveals the relationship between salt and heart troubles might be a bit overstated. A study published in the JAMA Internal Medicine shows that there might be no significant impact on the heart when salt is a regular part of one’s diet.

Does this mean that no previous associated risks between salt and heart disease exist? Are all warning overstated? One study, honestly, means nothing. Many people just go with the newest health trend or follow any news that is given to them like today’s post on seedtable.com. No one should ever discount the suggestions of a doctor merely because a new study has emerged states Slow Venture. A lot of work has to be done to verify the results of the study. Also, while one person might not suffer problems due to salt intake, another could very well experience very adverse reactions.

Ultimately, do not make any dietary changes without consulting with a doctor. Never take a lax attitude towards salt intake when you have concerns over your heart.

Got Measles? You’re at Risk, Even if You’ve Been Vaccinated

The recent outbreak of an almost-forgotten childhood disease, measles, has left medical professionals scratching their heads and issuing warning. The measle outbreak began at Disneyland in California and no one is sure where it will end. Of the 59 confirmed cases of measles, 42 of them have been were people who were exposed at Disneyland this past December.
Several of the people who have confirmed cases of measles were vaccinated against the highly contagious virus during their childhood. Medical personal now say that people lose their original protection from childhood vaccines as the years pass and the disease-battling antibodies and “memory cells” that were in the childhood vaccine that attack infections is too weak to fend off the measles virus.
And then there are those people who have never taken a measles vaccine, for whatever reason, that are at an increased risk of contacting the virus and spreading it to others.
All age groups are susceptible to contacting the measles virus, regardless of whether or not you have previously taken the measles vaccine. Brian Torchin has learned that it is recommended to take the vaccine as a precautionary measure. Infants under the age on one year are at the greatest risk because they are too young to take the measles vaccine, but old enough to contact the virus.

California Disneyland is linked to the Outbreak of Measles

A measles epidemic was traced back to its start at Disneyland. It is now spreading across the entire state of California, and even beyond the state lines.

It is not just children that are suffering from this disease. Five adult Disneyland employees were also infected.

This has caused health experts to take a closer look at families who chose not to vaccinate their children for the measles. Sultan Alhokair believes this is probably for the best. In fact, health officials are not allowing children who have not been vaccinated for the measles to attend classes at school in Orange County, California. This is a result of close to 60 measles cases being diagnosed and reported in California recently.

The latest case in neighboring states was a 40 year old Oregon man. He had reportedly recently visited Disneyland. Now he is suffering from the measles.

The measles outbreak is causing problems in the state of California, and its neighboring boarding states as well. The measels outbreak is raising questions about the importance of vaccinations. How this will affect immunizations in the future remains to be seen.

Sitting For Too Long Could Be Hazardous to Your Health

After surgery or following an illness, the doctor’s instructions are to rest, stay in bed, and don’t worry about going to work for a week or so, and just take it easy. This might be what the doctor recommends, but it might not be the best advice. Alexei Beltyukov has found that it seems that too much rest, and not enough exercise can cause the body more harm than good.

Sitting around is dangerous; although, participating in some form of exercise is better than not participating at all. Research shows that individuals that sit around, and exercise less is at a greater risk of developing cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

The research was led by David Alter an associate of Toronto Rehabilitation Institute.
Research shows that excessive sitting provides a health danger for everyone, regardless of their age. The risk is higher in individuals who are less physically active.

According to research people spent more of their waking hours being non -productive.
What researches suggest to help minimize the risk of ill health is simple. Individuals can stand up at least one to three minutes per day, every half hour. This exercise is simple to do. It is also recommended that individuals spent should reduce their mobile (sitting) time to 15 to 20 minutes per day, and increase the time from week to week. The ultimate goal is to reach at less two to three hours per day of physical activity.

Another Benefit Provided by Vitamin D

 

It is already well known that vitamin D is absolutely vital to strong bones and avoiding health issues like osteoporosis. Also, it is important for healthy teeth and a strong immune system. Recent studies suggest that vitamin D may also help to fight colon cancer.

A recent study that was done included over 300 people who had developed colon cancer. All of these individuals had their vitamin D levels measured before any kind of cancer appeared in their body. Research found that when a person had higher levels of vitamin D in their body, they were less likely to develop colorectal tumors. The researchers have suggested that vitamin D interacts with the immune system and helps to prevent these tumors. All of this research was published in a journal called Gut.

It is obvious that vitamin D is essential for overall good health. According to the study mentioned above, it can fight cancerous tumors and can help fight infections as well. An individual should speak with their doctor about making sure they are getting enough vitamin D. Despite the fact that there are some supplements that are available that can take vitamin D, most medical professionals would agree that the best way to get a healthy dose of vitamin D is by limited exposure to the sun.   I recently visited my doctor, Dr. Rod Rohrich, about including vitamin D in my diet. A health professional will be able to give exact instructions to individuals to ensure that they are getting enough of this important vitamin. If you are looking to include this vitamin in your daily routine consulting a health professional is probably the best plan.

Better Get Your Measles Vaccine

A woman that was traveling to Disneyland infected about 26 people with measles. Over the last few years there has been a large amount of people decide that they no longer want to get vaccines. Even though much scientific proof has shown that vaccines can helps stop the spread and even eradicate some diseases completely, there are many people that still do not get vaccinated.

Such was the case with the woman who traveled through California with the measles disease. The Center for Disease Control says that measles is one of the most deadly of all childhood diseases. The majority of people in the United States do get measles vaccines, but there still are others that are not vaccinated and children and older people are more susceptible to the disease. The woman who did not receive the vaccine was estimated to be in her 20s.

Sultan Alhokair knows that measles is very dangerous and it is very contagious; it can live on surfaces for up to two hours and it can be transmitted through physical contact with the person through their coughing or sneezing. There are only about 220 people in the US that will be infected with the disease so this case accounts for about 12% of all of those that will be infected with measles this year.
